From working undercover as a high school student to leading a United Nations International Police SWAT team through war-torn Kosovo on a hunt for war criminals, Jeff Morelock has experienced the need for firearm protection and safety firsthand. He performed these difficult tasks during more than 15 years in local and international law enforcement, and during his time on the force, the NRA-certified instructor also taught new recruits and developed the comfortable, supportive teaching style he maintains at Florida Concealed Weapons Permit. Students can learn about subjects such as firearm safety, concealed weapons laws, and defense shooting techniques, and reap the benefits of learning from a teacher who keeps his skills and tactics up-to-date. Though he caters his main class to experience shooters, Jeff also teaches shooting fundamentals such as proper grip, aiming, and stance during beginner sessions at the St. Pete Police Pistol Club Range.
The NRA-certified instructors teach at indoor and outdoor ranges.
Depending on the class, shooters use different calibers of handguns, such as .22, .380, 9 millimeter, and a .38 revolver.
Before becoming state- and NRA-certified firearms instructors, each Elite Tactical Training team member worked in law enforcement or the US Army. They draw from these experiences to teach safety during one-on-one, group, and women's-only classes that incorporate scenarios. To deal with each simulated situation, the experts teach their clients––who range from civilians to law-enforcement officers––to select a suitable caliber, safely handle their chosen firearm, and practice self-defense techniques.
The palm tree-lined campus at Sunstate Academy betrays its function by appearing on the surface to be an upscale salon. Yet, instead of performing the services themselves, the professionals inside are teaching and observing students as they put into practice their knowledge of cosmetology at the school's Salon Solaris. At pristine styling and wash stations, they cut, relax, color, perm, and condition hair. With the diversity of student interest comes diversity of services, and patrons might be pleasantly surprised to find dreadlocks, candy curls, finger waves, and elephant ears on the menu. The apprentices also dabble in nail and spa services, performing mani-pedis, and facials.
